Monongahela Valley Hospital, in collaboration with Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, will host two local information sessions on minimally invasive bariatric surgery, which treats obesity and its related complications.

Candidates for bariatric surgery are those who need to lose more than 100 pounds.

While Magee's surgical staff will perform the procedures in Pittsburgh, MVH will offer pre-operative testing/clearances and psychological and nutritional consults. The hospitals' collaborative effort will benefit local bariatric patients by reducing their required trips to Pittsburgh.

The Bariatric Surgery Information Sessions are free and will also include a healthy cooking demonstration with samples:

Monday, July 14, at 5:30 p.m., room 120, Mon-Vale HealthPLEX in Rostraver, with Ramesh Ramananthan, M.D., FRCS.Wednesday, July 23, at 5:30 p.m., in the MVH Anthony M. Lombardi Education Conference Center, 1163 Country Club Rd., Monongahela, with Carol McCloskey, M.D., FACS.

The physicians will explain minimally invasive (several small incisions) weight loss procedures such as adjustable gastric banding and gastric bypass procedures, as well as the steps required prior to surgery, the risks and benefits of the operation, the insurance requirements and the lifestyle changes required for losing and maintaining such significant weight reduction.

To register for either informational session, call 412-641-3632 or 412-802-8299.
